Charles on Twitter


Martin Luther King Jr Recreation Center in Gainesville, Florida

What happened?

- Oney Lorcan def. Dan Matha
- Angelo Dawkins & Kenneth Crawford def. Adrian Jaoude & Cezar Bononi
- Daria Berenato def. Aliyah
- Andrade “Cien” Almas def. Buddy Murphy
- Hideo Itami def. Patrick Clark
- Alexander Wolfe & Sawyer Fulton def. Niko Bogojevic & Tucker Knight
- Asuka promo
- Ember Moon def. Mandy Rose
- Shinsuke Nakamura & TM61 def. Wesley Blake & Authors of Pain

What caught our eye?

Almas was working face again, unlike a couple weekends back in Jacksonville. Like this DDT more than the double-knees as Cien’s finisher:

Really love the way they’re gradually having Asuka stretch her English on the mic - fans in Gainesville seemed to get the message (similar to the “I’ve cleared out the division stuff from this past Wednesday’s interview) and appreciated her effort:

These Tweets made me laugh:

Never crazy about AoP taking losses, but at least perennial whipping boy Beautiful Blake was there to be on the receiving end of the obligatory Nak & Friend Good Vibrations, and Kinshasa, and the pin.

What's next?

Some of these folks could work the Cruiserweight Classic live finale at Full Sail on Wednesday, the rest will be off until Cocoa next Friday.
